that a promise broken. where obama talked a big game about transparency, fulfilled a lot of transparency, don't get me wrong, but on something like that, the way washington works, those negotiations are not on c- span, they are in a room at the white house where deals are cut. it is sausage being made. that promise was not fulfilled, so that one earned a broken. host: what about his broader pledges on health care? guest: health care was an area where he had a fair amount of success. he kept 47% of the health-care promises. many of those were tucked inside the health care law, which of course passed in the first two years of his presidency when democrats controlled the house. so health care was an area where he had some of his biggest success. from caffeyhear from michigan on our democrats line. caller: good morning. i think the president has kept most of his promises. everyone he could possibly keep. i mean, the republicans have gone after him like nothing. but during the presidential election, you heard him say many times -- the republicans say -- "facts don't matter." they just do not care
and small business. finally, president obama, please, ease up on all the regulations. i want to talk about this because nobody should be satisfied with 2% growth. let's talk to our friend dean baker from the center for economic and policy research. welcome to both of you. all right, dean, i think 2% is way too low. i think we should be striving for something that's more than twice and that history of america. why can't we get there? >> i agree that's way too low. your policies, they tried that unity, they're back in recession or maybe they're scraping along. that's not going to do it. the story here, two issues. one, we are going to see slower growth because we have lower population growth and that's because people didn't have kids 30 years old. i don't know if you want to blame president obama for that, that's strange, but you can do so. this was a qualitatively different type of recession. he had a housing bubble, it collapsed. that was not the nature of the recession in '74, '75, '81, '82. those were easy to get out of. easy to have strong growth because the fed deliberately raised inte
obama faces a tough sell of congress. chris christie blasts the nra over the web ad featuring the obama daughters. >> to talk about the president's children or any public officer's children who have not by their own choice but by requirement to have protection and to use that somehow to try to make a political point, i think is rep rehencible. >> ask not what your country can do for you. ask what you can do for your country. >> government is not the solution to our problem. >> government is the problem. >> as times change, so government must change. we need a new government for a new century. >> my most solemn duty is to protect this nation and its people from further attacks and emerging threats. >> on this day we come to require an end to the petty grievances and worn-out dogmas that have strangled or politics for far too long. >> ready for round two. the white house unveils the president's new official portrait, but he and congress face a public deeply pessimistic view about whether they can get the economy moving again. >>> first lady michelle obama celebrating her 49th birthday wit
obama. we are talking about this bizarre story with a notre dame linebacker man'tao, caught in or himself perpetrating a hoax about this long-time special girlfriend of his in california who decide of cancer and it turns out she never existed. was he lied to, or was he lying? we will continue to take your calls about that and your comments on twitter. call us again at 866-55-press. of course, back to that in just a second but you heard me talk before about try and all of the fun i have been having on that site tracing my own family and i can tell you it's -- there is a lot of information there and it just got bigger. just learned today that is now up to 11 billion historical documents you can get access to and 41 million family trees already olbermann. it sounds like a lot of stuff and may be complicated to wade through. it's not. i can tell you. you go in, in and you give them a name maybe of your grandfather and you tell them you want to search like military records or birth records or death records or immigration re
bunker. not too bad for a family of four. we're talking about some prime washington real estate at 1600 pennsylvania avenue, the white house. president obama and his family get a rent free deal to live there for the next four years. you could say every american taxpayer owns just a little piece of the white house. felicia taylor, i wanted to talk to you about this. i saw this article in zillow had calculated this morning, just having fun, the white house isn't for sale. in terms of dollars and cents, if someone wanted to buy the white house what do you think it would be worth? >> about a cool $295 million. not such a big price tag. >> please. >> you certainly make enough to afford that, i know. anyway, zillow used public data and recent sales to figure it out. it buys you 50,000 square feet, 132 rooms, and three kitchens because one isn't enough. you got a pool, a movie theater, a bowling alley, that was because of the nixens, they asked for that one, a jogging track, which bill clinton added. the value of the white house got up, though, since obama came into town, up about 7% since 200
and president barack obama's campaigns and tony, from talk radio news service, tony? >> wow, i actually also make tv ads for a living, megyn and obviously, sometimes you do take creative license, but in that particular ad two things bothered me he the most the images of sandy hook, we know what we felt, every american with a heartbeat. and anti-gun groups really are now trying to guilt people into a position, and how much do you restrict and limit the second amendment. and number two the words they omitted and music added to the background. he said my grandfather had a gun to stop a lynching and my father had this rifle to protect our family. and creates an impression he's he a cowboy who misuses or abuses rather, his second amendment right and it's irresponsible and troubling this is the tempo for the debate. if you rightfully own a gun and believe in the second amendment you somehow are complicit or nefarious person and complicit with the sandy hook massacre. >> megyn: mark? >> nobody cares why john barrow's grandfather had the smith & wesson. nobody is trying to take it. and we're looking
. right. >> in these mass shootings. he didn't address, talk about the parental issues and things. we got the inaugural coming up. big look at the second term. we asked in our poll, give us a word or phrase to this advice to president obama and congress. what do you want? what is the message you'd like to send to president obama? number one fix the economy, create jobs. first two were that and the message to congress was almost unanimous. compromise together. >> yes. >> so we know where the public is. >> right. the public wants results and they want results in their jobs, in their lives. they want the government just to work better. and i think that is the big disconnect right now with washington because, you know, republicans are wondering how much leverage they have to force the president to deal with spending, for instance. do they sort of wait him out and hope for a positive result in 2014 and use whatever leverage over the del ceiling or whatever else but the public finds it so distasteful. the president too on issues like entitlement, i think it's really striking, will he seek to ri
's absolutely right. everyone is talking now about al qaeda's new refuge across northern africa but how is the u.s. military, how is the obama administration in this coming up four years going to go after this new al qaeda refuge? these are very remote areas. the u.s. military has very few forces in the region and, look, they are going to need permission of countries to go in there if they are going to go into these places. algeria has made it clear it doesn't want help. and libya is it a country that basically has no coherent national military force, a lot of militias running many parts of libya. so to go after al qaeda, it's a nice set of words but a promise that may be very hard to live up to, wolf. >> certainly will be, barbara. thank you. >>> an american worker at the algerian gas facility tells cnn he escaped on the first day of the siege by islamic terrorists. mark cobb, believed to be a resident of texas, told cnn in a message that he's safe after escaping with some algerian staffers. according to his linkedin pain, he's manager of a joint venture in algeria. >>> other news right now, it
this. and the europeans. >> rose: i thank you for taking time to come talk with us about this. >> thanks so much, charlie, pleasure. >> just to put this into the context not just of africa but of the broader fight against al qaeda, because president obama has often said that al qaeda is on its way to defeat and it's probably true that the central al qaeda ornization which was one headed by osama bin laden and headquartered in pakistan probably matter a lot less now than a few years ago but what you have seen is that as we pit al qaeda in the core area in afghanistan and pakistan it splintered outward and moved outward. and now are you seeing, you know, like a virus trying to find a body in which it can find a weak host. it's moving out and becoming more powerful in places like yemen, somalia, libya, now mali. so it's moving further and further a field and there are so many weak states because this is where terrorists te rt. they take root in failed states there are so many failed states in africa it is not just mali there are a lot of other places and now increasingly in north
, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
